Beneficiaries of Ujjwala scheme to get free gas cylinders on Holi as well: CM Yogi

Lucknow, Nov 10 (UNI) Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday said that the state government will once again provide free gas cylinders on the occasion of Holi in March next year for which the beneficiaries of the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana need to link their bank accounts with Aadhaar.
On the occasion of Dhanteras, the CM inaugurated the distribution campaign for free refills of cooking gas cylinders under the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana for 1.75 crore eligible families in the state from Lok Bhawan. The state government will spend Rs 2,312 crore on this campaign.
He said, "Our government is fulfilling another announcement made in the 'Lok Kalyan Sankalp Patra' during the assembly elections last year. Before 2014, people were not able to get gas connections. Even if a connection was available, they had to stand in long lines for cylinders."
